  1. Good article! I still remember all the goalie controversy threads on the old Wild boards about Fernandez and Roloson. Almost like a Miller Lite commercial: Manny! Rolli! Manny! Rolli! And Kuemper’s ability to give up five goals and then state “I felt I played pretty good!”
  2. Beckman had a great year. If the Wild don't sign him before the 2021 draft, he can re-enter the draft. If he continues to have another great year, he may take his chances on moving up in the draft, where he may command a bigger signing bonus, etc. Plus the Wild would lose a potentially decent prospect.
  3. I think the true numbers of COVID-19 are probably lower, because there has been such poor testing in some countries (USA I'm looking in your direction). I've read some reports where they think the mortality rate may be actually closer to 1% because some people may have had it and thought it was the flu and never got tested. But that's still a lot of people dying. That's the thing that's frustrating working in public health. People are scared, and we try to make reasonable recommendations about hand washing, social distancing, and self-isolation to calm them down. But then you get a "leader" who basically flaunts all of our recommendations because he's worried that he'll look "weak" or his Nielsen Ratings will go down.
  4. The mortality rate for 1918 H1N1 pandemic was approximately 1-3% worldwide. The mortality rate for 1968 H3N2 pandemic was approximately 0.03% worldwide. The mortality rate for 2009 H1N1 pandemic was approximately 0.001-0.003% worldwide. The mortality rate for 2002 SARS-CoV outbreak was approximately 9.5% worldwide (NOTE: 8089 people were diagnosed with SARS and 774 died from it) The mortality rate for the MERS-CoV virus since 2012 was approximately 34% worldwide (NOTE: 2519 people were diagnosed with MERS and 866 died from it, mainly limited to the Middle East.) Far fewer people appear to be infected by past coronavirus outbreaks (SARS and MERS), but the mortality rate is much higher than the influenza virus.
  5. So if Canada banned meetings of more than 100 people, would there still be a parade route?
  6. I’m kind of glad this happened for my Wild. Right now they are out of the Playoffs. Maybe that will finally send a message to Fan Boy #1 that building around Parise, Suter, and Koivu didn’t work...
  7. Not trying to be a smart ass, but I think Disney already made that decision for you...
  8. Personally, I think the US is about three months from this thing calming down. I'm using China as a gauge. Started in December (November really, but that's another story) and now in March China is reporting that new cases are declining. Things are just starting here, so I'm guessing that things are going to get worse before they get better here, probably around June or so...
  9. And that's that. Think they're going to play the last 11 games of the season or just draw a line in the standings right now when and if they resume play in a month or so?
  10. Pierre LeBrun reporting Bettman asked the Board of Governors to put the season on hold (not cancelled)...
  11. I’ve always maintained people are no more than two legged sheep. Or worse. Seriously. Keep my hipster beard but buy a case of N-95 masks? Buy four months of toilet paper even though this is a respiratory virus not Norovirus? My God. How did we discover fire...
  12. I think people need to keep this outbreak in perspective. Johns Hopkins University - Coronavirus vs Influenza Infections COVID-19: Approximately 115,997 cases worldwide; 761 cases in the U.S. as of Mar. 10, 2020. Flu: Estimated 1 billion cases worldwide; 9.3 million to 45 million cases in the U.S. per year. Deaths COVID-19: Approximately 4,087 deaths reported worldwide; 27 deaths in the U.S., as of Mar. 10, 2020. Flu: 291,000 to 646,000 deaths worldwide; 12,000 to 61,000 deaths in the U.S. per year. More people are infected and die of influenza worldwide and yet that does not stop football games, hockey games, concerts, church gatherings, etc. Right now, the COVID-19 mortality rate appears to be higher than influenza (3.5% vs 0.1%), but that's because there is such a limited data set compared to influenza. They know how many people died from COVID-19, because they can test the deceased. They don't know how many people were truly infected, because the symptoms are so similar. The true number of COVID-19 infections could be much higher, which would lower the mortality rate. We've been conditioned to not go to the doctor if you have fever, chills, body-aches, etc. because you most likely have the flu, and there is nothing the doctor can do for you. So many more people may have had COVID-19 but didn't go to the doctor because they thought they had the flu.
  13. What’s more important to the NHL, making a profit or the health of their fans?
  14. Yup. That's why I just shake my head when I see these photos of those cruise passengers with N-95's on, especially the ones with the beards! And those 3M ones are single use only. Like if you're sanding a floor. They're not designed to be used day after day. And you're right. Those idiots buying up the masks put a bigger strain on the health care system and those that work in it and who could actually use those masks...
